Despite the ban on women in the Union Army, Elizabeth Newcomb fought in the Civil War. Bill, as she was known, dressed as a man and saw combat in several battles. We have named our India Pale Ale after Elizabeth because its looks are deceiving. Although light in color, it is fully hopped with a bold, bitter taste. This beer is not for the rookie ale drinkers, and certainly would have been a favorite of Elizabeth’s.

Dogbrick (11495) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden-orange color with a medium thin and somewhat creamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and sweet malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, grapefruit and caramel malt. The finish is mildly hoppy with a short bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap at the Foundry. Pours a clear amber gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has light grapefruit with a bit of pine and a pretty strong bread backbone. Flavor is similar with pine and bread combining and backed by a touch of grapefruit.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pint at McCoys. This arrived in a shaker pint very clear with some copper color. An off white layer is less than a finger. A soft flral and pale malt aroma. There is floral in the flavor with citrus.. Bitterness is fairly big and the hops seem fresh. Biscuit is light.

Surprisingly good IPA. Strong hops. A good local brewpub beer that had a nice bitter finish.
